This book examines the quest for/failure of Utopia across a range of contemporary American/transnational fictions in relation to terror and globalization through authors such as Susan Choi, André Dubus, Dalia Sofer, and John Updike. While recent critical thinkers have reengaged with Utopia, the possibility of terror — whether state or non-state, external or homegrown — shadows Utopian imaginings. Terror and Utopia are linked in fiction through the exploration of the commodification of affect, a phenomenon of a globalized world in which feelings are managed, homogenized across cultures, exaggerated, or expunged according to a dominant model. Narrative approaches to the terrorist offer a means to investigate the ways in which fiction can resist commodification of affect, and maintain a reasoned but imaginative vision of possibilities for human community. Newman explores topics such as the first American bestseller with a Muslim protagonist, the links between writer and terrorist, the work of Iranian-Jewish Americans, and the relation of race and religion to Utopian thought.

British Romanticism and the Jews explores the mutual influences exerted by the British-Christian and British-Jewish communities on each other during the period between the Enlightenment and Victorianism. The essays in the volume demonstrate how the texts produced by the Jewish Enlightenment provided a significant resource for romantic intellectual revisionism, in much the same way that British romanticism provided the cultural basis through which the British-Jewish community was able to negotiate between the competing obligations to ethnicity and nationalism.

By kind request. It is a year since the well-received book Progressive Rock 2. Boundary Lines. Journalist Stefano Orlando Puracchio is back with his new book Progressive Rock 3 By Kind Request. The title alones indicates a great response and an awaited comeback. Thanks to the excellent feedback from readers and specialised journalists, but also thanks to the increasingly firm certainty of the reasons of Self-Publishing, as well as the need to draw conclusions after two volumes of interviews and reflections, Puracchio has decided to tackle the phenomenon of progressive once again, with his diverse and stimulating approach. More than an analytical essay or a scientific treatise, Puracchio envisages his work yet again as a sort of “jumble” of interviews, thematic essays and reflections on the past, present and future of prog-rock.
